Match the 06 up with the 04 that will tell you if it will work. I would say that if the 06 head will fit on a 04 cylinder then yeah it will work.

I tried it. They match up but I could not get the 04 gasket to not leak (coolant out the side). Tried to re torque it to get it to seal but no luck. I put on the 06 gasket and was perfect. I would not recommend it.

PS I could not tell a difference in performance from the 04 to 06 gasket.

we've been using the 04 as a tuning tool on 05 & 06's. You pickup @ .3 points of compression.

use gasket sealer for all your gaskets, expecially your head gasket, and then when you torque your head down tighten it to 100 foot pounds, then you will get 102 hp.
